Joshikousei aka High School Girls is about just that, girls who have just entered an all girls high school. There's some laughs to be had with this bunch as they aren't your typical girls. We get to see a lot of their uniforms in this show but they do venture out and do teenager stuff quite often while not wearing their school uniforms.
This show features 2 main outfits that the girls wear. One gray and one blue. We see the blue one the most. I think the gray one is for summer or something but I'm not really 100% sure and could have totally made that up. Both skirts are plaid which is cute and both have normal white tops. The blue outfit has a snazzy blue jacket that the girls can wear that looks quite nice since it matches their skirts quite well. I've never been huge on girls wearing ties but these red and yellow ones compliment both of their uniforms quite well. I think that's pretty hard to do with red and yellow but somehow it works. All girls wear dark blue socks generally unless they want to be fashionable. The girl in the pictures below that wears huge ugly bow instead of a tie generally likes different socks than the other girls too. There's a pretty ugly sweater that they can wear if they don't wish to wear the blue jacket too.
The gym outfits are pretty much normal but the shirt seems to be quite big on all the girls as it goes quite low. Sometimes it looks like they are just wearing a shirt with underwear to me. Even though this anime takes place in an all girls school we get to see what a boys gym outfit would be because this guy shows up often. I don't remember who he is but he was around often enough. Too bad they never put him in an actual school uniform! The other picture is another school's outfit that was in this show too. I think it's quite cute but would look best on a young girl because it's very childish and quite the plain, typical sailor suit look. I think these were the middle school kids uniforms.
Overall: Nope don't wanna wear any of these but it wouldn't bother me if I had to either.
This time it's a showdown between Digiboy and Otou-san! to see if I was going to enjoy Joshikousei or not. Digiboy was for and Otou-san against. This one was probably one of the funnest anime I could have gotten for my Not so Secret Santa Project.
Joshikousei AKA High School Girls is just what the title says it's about. A group of girls are making the leap into high school! They expect a grand and glorious change from their middle school days. While a change certainly is in store it doesn't really turn out to be the fairy tail they want. Girls are gross, crude, and crass when no one is looking! Joshikousei follows these girls and they, love, cry, live, and laugh at their experiences while growing up!
Digiboy Win: The girls and their gross dirty ways was hilarious.
Episode 1 and 2 showed this really well and then that idea kind of dwindled as the show went on but appeared now and then still in later episodes. Episode 2 was the oh so silly School Physical where one of the girls was trying to weigh less by balancing with one leg on a scale. Wouldn't balancing on a scale actually make you weigh more? You know... because you are putting all your weight plus into keeping your balance? XD I ended up asking a lot of strange question due to these girls antics.
Otou-san Win: The parody bits before the OP were awesome and generally the best part of the later boring episodes.
Any show that pokes fun at Maria-sama and Nana is AOK by me! Random pirates and gunfights are pretty cool too!
Digiboy Win: Most of the characters were amazing. Even the side ones.
All 6 of the girls the show revolves around brought something fun to the show. Sometimes it was logical, most of the time it was wacky and strange. Both were highly appreciated. Characters is where this show didn't let me down. Even if they were doing something I didn't care about I still found myself caring even if it was boring. Oddly enough I don't have a favourite one. They all were pretty awesome.
Otou-san Win: The middle episodes (5-7, 9, 10) were poo.
All these episodes were so boring I actually don't really remember much about them. I even took notes and those notes don't even make much sense... Not that my note taking is super amazing by any stretch. I was sad that episode 5 being a pool episode and 7 being a beach episode didn't have me in stitches with laughter. They really could have done much better with these 2.
Overall: HaHa BOTH WERE RIGHT!~ But Digiboy wins slightly more because in the end I did give the show a passing mark. Joshikousei is the little sister series to Seitokai Yakuindomo that aired in 2010. I highly suggest checking that anime out over this one for girls being crass and nasty if you haven't seen it already. Oh and I guess you could watch Joshikousei too if you haven't! I swear you won't loose "many" braincells!
